My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #796: Working . . .

08-21-2012 10:29 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday was one of those days when I felt like I worked all day and still didn’t finish. I wonder where the day went. I suppose when looking back, I did accomplish quite a bit, but I wish that I could have finished cutting out the ornaments for the next project. Before cutting, I needed to do some final ‘tweaking’ of the line work so that everything would be able to be cut without falling apart. In between that, there were other things to do and it was nearly 4pm by ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #795: Moving Forward - The Next Phase

08-20-2012 10:55 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 9 comments »

It’s another early morning today. I suppose I am excited about all that is ahead of me today. It is a new day and a new week is beginning and I can’t wait to see what is in store. There are good things happening all around and allowing them to unfold before me fills me with anticipation. I am not as anxious as I have been in the past. After years of doubt and being unsure of so many things, I think that we have built a sturdy foundation for the business that is diverse enough...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #794: Enjoy the Process

08-19-2012 11:51 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

As time goes on, it seems that the world is migrating more and more towards instant gratification. We are continually looking for ways to have things completed in record time, with fewer steps and the least amount of effort. While I realize that this is not news to anyone, I just wanted to bring it up to make my point. While doing things more quickly and efficiently can be a very positive thing, I sometimes find myself wondering what the hurrying is all about. Yes, I understand when we a...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #790: Things and Stuff

08-15-2012 11:37 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

Yesterday was a full day of all kinds of things. But all was good. People often ask me how I stay so organized when I am doing so many different things. I think that the answer to that is quite easy – maintenance. Even though I wanted to charge into the next project(s) that I am thinking about, I looked around here and things were getting a little shabby around the edges. Not myself actually (although I am sure some would argue with you!) but the usual tell tale things like my ...

Dresser / Chainging Station #1: Planning

08-02-2012 01:25 PM by Andrew | 0 comments »

Another project for the nursery is a changing station / dresser. I will be using the same material, sassafras and ash, as the crib. I initially was planning on doing only a changing station with open shelves underneath and maybe one small drawer at the top, but we decided to go with the full drawers to use it as a dresser afterwards. I’m not sure yet on how I will do the drawers, if they will be inset or not. They will be on hardwood rails, using white oak scraps from the kitchen cab...

Crib #2: Progress

08-02-2012 12:56 PM by Andrew | 0 comments »

The crib is almost done, and has been for awhile. I started work on the crib before joining lumberjocks. I have one more coat of finish to apply to the side rails. I ended up using a 1/4” roundover router bit for most of the edges. I’m not sure how my joinery will hold up. I am not setup to do mortise and tenons yet, and used glue and biscuits for the head and foot board. I think having the large ash boards running horizontally will keep everything stable. We will see how it ho...

Crib #1: Planning

08-02-2012 12:48 PM by Andrew | 0 comments »

I have already started to make a crib for my soon to be here son. I started with a sketchup drawing of what the crib would look like and to help me visualize what I would need to do. Also, it was to show my wife the design for approval before going forward. I read a few articles before starting the design since cribs have had quite a few recalls. I found some aspects that were important: Spacing of no more than 2 1/2 inches between the bars Keeping the mattress close to the side rai...
